John 14:17 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

The Spirit of Truth

"A most exquisite title," says Bengel. The Spirit, who has the truth, reveals it, by knowledge in the understanding; confers it by practical proof and taste in the will; testifies of it to others also through those to whom He has revealed it; and defends that truth, of which John 1:17 speaks, grace and truth.... The truth makes all our virtues true. Otherwise there is a kind of false knowledge, false faith, false hope, false love; but there is no such thing as false truth."

The world

See on John 1:9.

Shall be in you

Some editors read, ἐστίν, is in you.
